If you want to be the best, then you should probably join us 

Students in our academy made more progress than in any other school in London and made the best progress of any co-educational school in the country in 2014 (Best 8 score 1081.4). In addition, we have maintained our results in 2017 at a level significantly above national averages. That is great news for our students, the academy and our community, but there is so much more that we know can be achieved and you can help. 

We have a relentless ambition to deliver continuing success to the young people we serve. Our approach is based on very simple principles: clear systems and extremely high expectations. We focus on the development of our students, their values and ultimately their academic success. We maximise the impact of teaching by providing clear leadership, minimising bureaucracy and effective support that have tangible results on the quality of teaching and outcomes for our students.

The Role

We are seeking to appoint a highly skilled, professional and experienced leader to be responsible for our Financial Management and Administrative systems within the academy.

The successful applicant will provide strategic and operational leadership, planning and management of school business and support functions, including Finance, Human Resources, Facilities, ICT, Health and Safety, and Student Services, all of which contribute to creating the conditions for all students to experience success.

You must be educated to a degree level or equivalent and hold a recognised qualification in Business, Finance or Administration. The successful candidate must be a confident leader who can function well as part of a team, have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, be highly organised and have the ability to work under pressure in order to meet deadlines.

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to shape the lives of young people in Hackney. If you think you can help transform the opportunities for the community we serve, then we would like to hear from you.
